Who was it for?
For the Ravensbourne2011 Degree Show I joined the installation team hoping to create something I could hand in as my final typography project at University.
What was the brief?
We were tasked with filling the college with interesting installations using digital media. The theme was vague - simply 'concrete canvas'. Alongside two fellow Ravensbourne students Dan Palmer (coder) and Rupert De Paula (producer), we came up with this concept to project what was happening on Twitter during the show live onto the wall.
What did I do?
Working as the designer on the project, I concentrated on the user experience and the visual design of the Twitterwall. Here is my project report for the entire project:
The project went live on the day of the show, 28th June and was also selected to go to D&AD New Blood, the creative festival on Brick Lane. We re-coloured the project and made it follow #newblood and other D&AD-related hashtags, rather than #ravensbourne. We received a lot of positive feedback from both shows and it was a great way for us to keep up with what people were talking about at the events.
You can view the D&AD Twitterwall live now at this link. It is best viewed in Chrome on a Macbook or Macbook Pro, or even on an iPad 2, as you can tilt the screen and control the gravity affecting the balls.
So what happened in the end?
We were nominated in the Ravensbourne2011 Awards for 'Innovation in Digital Technology' but sadly didn't win. However I was personally awarded 'Most Accomplished Creative' at Ravensbourne2011 for my overall portfolio.
Finally, here is a short 'making of' we made for the project:
